Artistic Play Structure

Summary

Type Street Furniture

     There are five tables with curved concrete bases and attached wooden seats. Nearby is a wooden play structure that resembles a series of large rubber car tyres set on end, and through which the children are able to crawl.
     Southfields Community Action Group was awarded £4,500 from the Arts for Everyone Lottery Fund to make an outdoor sculpture in a school playground in Hillfields. Marcia Jarrett, a Community Link worker and Jane Emery, a parent governor helped plan the project. Older pupils worked with the sculptor to design a play structure on a piece of derelict land. Parents helped with the construction. A 'Grand Arts Festival' was planned by the school to mark the opening of the work.
